Game of Thrones Characters and Their Cars
With one of the most popular series just ending their sixth season, it got me wondering on what the characters would drive if they had cars.
One of the most ruthless characters in Game of Thrones. She would not have been seen alive driving her own car so would of course need a driver. The Mercedes 600 Pullman would be the dictator’s favourite.
Pretty boy Jamie Lannister is hyper masculine and confident, I think his car would have to be as versatile as his character has turned out to be. The Bentley Continental GT V8 is a car which combines speed, practicality and iconic style – whilst also being a bit disruptive.
It is a car carrying a name that resonates prestige much like the Lannister title itself.
Jamie is easily the most stylish character on the show with his armour looking resplendent in battle, so a car matching his panache for appearances is ideal.
Tyrion although underestimated because of his size has proven himself to be one of the most intelligent and entertaining of the Game of Thrones characters. He gets involved with strategy and knows how to win wars, even if he cannot fight them himself. Tyrion is also a bit of lad, enjoying the company of females and a fair few drinks. He would probably like a beautiful car that would attract the ladies. I have therefore chosen the Aston Martin Vanquish as it’s one of the coolest cars you can get.
Ayra may be small, but don’t be fooled, she has grown from a young tomboy to a ferocious and lethal woman, happily stabbing anyone who crosses her or her family. Equally small and equally ferocious is the Abarth 595, so here is my choice for what I reckon Ayra Stark would drive.
Poor old Sansa Stark spends her life getting pushed around. After being almost forced to marry Joffrey Lannister she was then actually forced to Tyrion Lannister, which then got even worse when she was handed over to Ramsey. If whoever’s control she’s under actually let her drive, she’d be lumbered with something awful, like a Pontiac Aztek. A fittingly bad car for her rather unlucky events in life.
Jon Snow is the bastard son of the legendary Eddard Stark. Jon was raised by Ned Stark but was always made to feel like an outsider by Ned’s wife Catelyn. He is very close to and protective over his half sister Arya. Jon joins the Night’s Watch where he has the makings of an impressive leader and skilful warrior like his Father. Being someone who knows how to handle himself, he would want a car that handles the road well. It would need to be reliable, adaptable and versatile. The Landrover Discovery is an impressive all rounder. It can carry lots of people, large objects, travel long distances, drive effectively off road, and provide shelter, and best of all it still manages to look good.
Daenerys is the last of the Targaryens and the Mother of Dragons. She is a woman on a mission, determined to claim the Throne she feels is rightfully hers. She starts off the series as a slightly naive and shy girl but she soon transforms into a powerful warrior who delivers motivating speeches to spur her people on.
The Porsche 911 would be Daenery’s choice of car because she would probably want something that is fast and powerful yet elegant as well as being fire proof. She might also want a convertible as she doesn’t have children and having the roof down would enable her to see her dragons flying in the sky.
